March 4, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Royal BAM Group (AMS: BAMNB) is delighted to present its seventh annual Sustainability Report. The Report forms part of Royal BAM Group’s Annual Report for 2013. The Sustainability Report has been externally verified and for the first time complies with GRI’s newest G4 Guidelines, meeting the most extensive level ‘Comprehensive’, and includes the Construction and Real Estate Sector Supplement (CRESS). The 2013 Sustainability Report is available online via

Highlights of the Report include:

  • Eighteen percent of revenues, approximately € 1.2 billion, came from projects that have been registered with third-party green building or sustainable construction ratings organisations.
  • BAM’s Incident Frequency (IF) has dropped to 5.8 (2012: 6.9).
  • Carbon reduction was achieved in the Construction and M&E services sector and in BAM’s offices in general. The amount of green electricity further improved. However, due to the increase of activities outside Europe and higher revenue from energy-intensive infrastructure projects, total carbon emissions increased to 272 kilotons (2012: 249 kilotons).
  • Construction and office waste reduced by 15% to 200 kilotons (2012: 230 kilotons), in line with BAM’s 2015 targets. The amount of waste recycled and converted into energy increased to 89.2% (2012: 85.3%).
  • BAM joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Circular Economy 100 (CE100) as a member. The CE100 is a global platform bringing together leading companies, emerging innovators, and regions to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
  • BAM was recognised as industry leader in the 2013 Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), scoring 96% for disclosure and included in the Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI).
